Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that his team did not deserve three points against West Brom.
“[The performance?] Not worthy of three points,” said Solskjaer. “We didn’t do enough to win the game.
“To earn three points in the Premier League always requires a lot of things – quality, tempo, attitude.
“We’ve got the right attitude and the work-rate is there. We just didn’t have the quality in the last moments to have the right cross or be in the right place to tap it in.”
However, he has refused to concede the title to Manchester City.
He said: “No one will give it away this early. This season is so unpredictable, life is so unpredictable, anything can happen and of course we’re not going to settle for second.
“It’s a compliment to the boys that we’ve gotten ourselves into the position we’re in. We’re the team closest [to Man City] and we should be challenging the team in front of us.
“We’re not going to let them get away with it, but we need to win games to be in that position.”
United are 8 points behind City having played a game more with 14 games left to play this season.
